We use High Quality Components

Everything in this system is of the highest quality available.   The 100 mil bucket wall thickness allows this bucket to handle vacuums as high as 70 inches of water, over three times the vacuum pulled by the Makita.  In addition, the mounting plate is 1/8″ steel or aluminum plate and powder coated for long life.   Furthermore, the vacuum hose is the best available providing low flow losses making this vacuum bucket the best available on the market.

The old saying, you get what you pay for applies to this Commercial Grade Cyclonic Separator 7 Gallon Plastic Bucket.  Therefore, this bucket Lid is tough and durable and is not like the inexpensive kind made for saw dust.  This vacuum bucket is made for wet or dry materials. For instance, it will handle anything from 1-1/2 inch gravel to raw sewage.    Consequently, this is the most rugged cyclonic separator bucket available.   It is made to last a long time. In addition, it is a “System” that is highly efficient.

In addition, the lid is easily removable and will screw into any 5 or 7 gallon bucket with Gamma Lid Adapter. When the bucket wears out, it is replaceable with any standard 5 or 7 gallon bucket. The key component of this lid is the 1/8″ laser cut metal plate with deflector adapters. Coated for durability the plate is powder coated where it counts.  Both hose adapters are specifically made to accept Cat 6 Tools Low Loss Hose Hose Cuffs that screw on.   Not to worry, these lid adapters will also accept any standard 2-1/2′ shop vacuum hose adapters.  These vacuum separators are the most versatile in the industry.

Save your vac and your back.

Shop vacuums are extremely difficult to empty when filled with heavy debris.  The 7 gallon bucket and handle make lifting easy and dumping just as easy.   In addition, cleaning buckets is a lot easier than cleaning out shop vacuums.  These vacuum separator buckets are easy to to clean by just using a garden hose to wash out.

It works with all 2-1/2″ shop vacuum hoses

This Cyclonic Separator Bucket lid has two deflector connectors, one for hooking to your shop vacuum using the 4 foot hose that comes with the unit, and one for the vacuum hose.  Using a Gamma Lid, the deflector plate solidly attaches with stainless hardware.   This separator lid will screw onto any 5 or 7 gallon bucket fitted with a female gamma lid.  Everything is replaceable.

Save your back and your your shop vac when sucking up really bad stuff.   Because it works wet or dry, this industrial grade cyclonic vacuum bucket works in any environment.  As a result of heavy duty construction, when your bucket is full, remove the deflector lid and replace with a solid Gamma Lid available at most hardware stores.  This lid seals in the nasty stuff for easy transport and disposal.
